only show that Brent didn't sing, played great keys
the show was wild. bought a ticket that morning we arrived and GA and small venue. Phil rocked the place with bass all over the place. starting from Bertha when Weir motioned to Phil slow down and take it easy, but Phil played louder. He sang a verse of Ashes to ashes all fall down, he grabbed Bob's mike. He conducted during the Other One. Notice on all the tunes no Brent back ground vocals. He didn't have a mike for some reason. He sang the next night in Boston. Notice on Candyman, just Jerry and Bob on vocals. Everyone chanted Phil, Phil and he responded, he walked across the front of the stage and motioned don't worry he had it covered. started riffing the other one opening popping the speakers and rumbling the building. bob closed with comment, thanks for keeping us alive all these years.

One of the best shows ever!. Music and crowd were great that night!! Me and my buddy partook of some choice chemicals outside the C4, got lost after the show wandering around the streets of the Old Port looking for our car, and imbibing a few beers at neighborhood pubs, just to straighten up. Finally found it in a parking garage, next door to the Civic Center! Unfortunately, maybe fortunately, we had to sleep in the car...the gate was closed for the night. Jerry was great!!!

How can anyone not like this tape
Graduated in 82, someone left this tape at my house, no date, no venue, just one kick ass tape. In the 30 years I have owned this tape, I have turned at least 20 non-deadheads into heads, have made friends, some great friends over listening to this tape,and probably have made over 200 recordings of this for friends. The sound is awesome, the recording is awesome, and if you don't croon with Jerry on High Time than you ain't no Deadhead

Super Lesh Overdrive Barn Burner!
Hey mid maine above, first show, eh? Luck of the Dead was with you, this is in my top 10 hottest shows of the hundred or so I was blessed to see! My life changing show had come not long before this night- 2nd show of that same summer's Red Rocks shows. *** Not sure what Pangolin and other's are hearing,but I was at this show and we ALL thought it was one of the hottest nights of the Fall East Coast tour, no question!
Seriously, 5 songs before the drums, including a debut, and a rarity, then the lost Spanish Bollero into some BASS MELT DOWN from Lesh, by request from the crowd.
Going down the Road was so hot then the steady majesty of The Morning Dew, that version alone made the night notable, I feel. And of course a classic closer and a version of US Blues that shows what it was like when not perfunctory as too often in later years. All in All an Amazing Show ~*~
Example: The Other One was a highlight too
NB Lesh response to the chanting crowd from 0:40 to 1:40 And listen from 2:00, leading up to the bass opening, and beyond, perfect Other One,
Yes there are other's likewise beyond awesome, but doesn't get any fiercer or more ominous or musically crisp or sheer fun in any version I know.

This is a solid show top to bottom. The second set has that extra sweet and spicy mix which led John Scott to describe post-drumz as being Szechuan. OK, it's not St. Paul from August, but then again, it's a little bit more prickly and crackly and zippy.
This is definitely the best recording of this show. . . . Finally.
(Yeah, I'm a little biased. Every has a first show; this one is mine. Definitely changed the course of my life.)

I generally enjoy fall 82 but this one didn't do that much for me. Not bad, not great. Jerry's voice starts to crack and strain, often to good effect like on that Morning Dew (which I would peg as my highlight).
I'd say 3.5 stars overall
